I could be wrong, but I thought that was going to be a case, or a potential
upgrade to the compatibility section of the plugin repository? Or it maybe
had something to do with integrating with the plugins page in admin, but I
couldn't be 100% sure sadly, I can't even remember where I read it either? -
Sorry I'm not much help! =/
